    Pets thrown a bone in family wills Add to ... BRENDA BOUW Special to The Globe and Mail Published Wednesday, Mar. 09, 2016 10:16PM EST A growing number of Canadians are including provisions for their pets in their wills, says Barry Seltzer, a lawyer and co-author of Fat Cats & Lucky Dogs: How to Leave (Some of) Your Estate to Your Pet. While many people may have informal agreements about who gets their pet when they die, Mr. Seltzer believes having it in the legal document could prevent any potential costly disputes, similar to other assets. “You get to decide what you’d like to happen and you make it known to the people involved what your wishes are,” Mr. Seltzer says. “Assuming someone is going to step in and take over is a bad plan. It doesn’t always happen.”
